• SECTION 504 OF ADA

    • THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES REHABILITATION ACT OF 1973 - STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

      The Americans with Disabilities Act is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in programs and activities. The District has specific responsibilities related to the provision of a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) to school age individuals with disabilities under Section 504. The District is required to provide a program designed to provide equal access to the educational program and activities for students with disabilities as adequately as that provided for students without disabilities. For students who are not eligible for special education services, but meet the federal definition of persons with disabilities under Section 504, a Section 504 Plan may be developed which indicates the accommodations, supplementary aids and/or services that will be provided to assist the student in accessing the general education program. Section 504 must provide nonacademic and extracurricular services and activities in a manner that ensures that individuals with disabilities have an equal opportunity to participate

      Discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and/or bullying on the basis of their actual or perceived disability will not be tolerated. The District will promptly investigate any complaints of disability-based discrimination, harassment, intimidation and/or bullying, and take reasonable actions to stop future incidents. 

      Parents or Guardians with concerns regarding Section 504 should contact the site Principal.
